Thailand’s Highways Department says all national highways in the country will be four-lane roads, two lanes in each direction, within three years.
Daily News says the Director-General of the Highways Department, Sarawut Songsiwilai, made the announcement yesterday. Sarawut says the expansion will mean the country’s highways are better prepared to accommodate an increase in traffic using the network.
It’s understood that 80% of the development project (comprising around 4,239 kilometres of highways) has been completed, with another 1,000 kilometres remaining.
Sarawut also points out that the 1586 hotline number is available for road users to notify officials of poor road conditions or any other problems with road maintenance.
